    Well thank you all for telling me about vft flowering. What I would like to know is if I can feed it other insects than flies. Can I feed it small bees? Or parts of bees that do not contain the venom sac?

    Well, now that I have set them out for the spring, my plants catch mainly flies, and wasps. Indoors they catch gnats, and spiders. Here are some good choices:
    caterpillars(watch it so they dont eat their way out)
    flies
    spiders
    crickets
    slugs

    Not so good of candidates:
    ants
    moths
    beetles (too much sturdy exoskeleton).

    Never feed the VFT with a bee because..............................................................................IT'S MEAN! - I like bees!

    Ewwwwwww ans slugs that is just gross - Do they have an exoskeloten and do they take longer to digest? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
